Blewett Grabs Improbable Victory At Stafford

Takes Advantage of Leader's Woes To Claim Whelen Modified Win

STAFFORD, Conn. – It was one of the most improbable of victories Friday night, but that didn't make it any less sweet for Jimmy Blewett.

“You've got to put yourself in position,” said Blewett, who has collected four top three finishes in nine races in the No. 4 Starrett/Mayhew Dodge. “We worked all race long to be in position to be there in the end, to have a shot.”

Friday marked the sixth career win and first since 2009 for the long-time Modified driver. Blewett sat out of the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour the last two years before getting an opportunity to drive for Bob Garbarino's historic No. 4 Modified. more results
